max bill MEGA Solar awarded as the best watch

Puristic design combined with innovative technology – with this concept, the max bill MEGA Solar by Junghans was able to convince the industry experts of the INHORGENTA AWARD 2022 and was chosen as the “Retailers Choice – Best Watch”. The INHORGENTA AWARD is considered the most important award of the industry and has already been awarded for the fifth time in altogether eight categories. The awarding traditionally marks the highlight of Germany’s biggest watch and jewellery trade show that opened its doors from April 8 to 11 in Munich this year.

“After the INHORGENTA could not take place last year, we were all the more happy to meet our partners in person again. Over the four trade-show days, we had many insightful talks and were able to show great brand presence in addition to unveiling our latest product innovations at our booth”, Matthias Stotz, Managing Director of Junghans, summed up completely satisfied.

“The INHORGENTA AWARD in the category ‘Retailers Choice: Best Watch’ tops off a completely successful trade show. After having already been awarded twice for the best ‘Watch Design’ in the past, this is our third win at the INHORGENTA AWARDs now. This makes us proud in particular because this is an award by the specialist trade”, Matthias Stotz explains. “The success of the max bill MEGA Solar, which – by the way – we presented at the last INHORGENTA before the pandemic in February 2020, shows that this model also asserted itself in this crisis, and is a successful product for our partners.”

Three-time award-winning design

The max bill MEGA Solar stands for a seamless combination of the latest watch technology and the puristic product design by Max Bill. The clear design of the dial is reduced to the essentials following the original design of the Bauhaus artist from 1961. There is a specially designed solar cell for this model below the light transparent and domed dial. It powers the highly efficient and precise multi-frequency radio-controlled movement of the max bill MEGA Solar using the inexhaustible energy of the sun. A perpetual calendar as well as the adjustment of all known time zones with the crown or via synchronisation with the Junghans MEGA App enable the exact display of time anytime, anywhere. The anti-reflection sapphire crystal and the use of titanium make this timepiece both resistant and light as a feather. Together with the special skin-friendliness of titanium, a high wearing comfort is achieved.

The max bill MEGA Solar has already been awarded the Red Dot Award: Best of the Best 2021 and the Focus Gold of the Design Center Baden-Württemberg for its particularly sustainable design concept last year.
